Upgrader is a simple tool that enables Java developers to add software upgrade capability into their applications. An upgrade process typically involves replacing the old version of the binaries with a new version of the binaries and performing data upgrades. It may also need to perform changes to the directory structure. The data upgrade outlined above may involve changes to the configuration files or database. This tool provides a framework which application developers can use to keep track of changes to the application. Every time there is a change in the database schema or configuration files, the application developers can create a "patch" script and add it to the "patch list". The Upgrader tool may be bundled with the application and is typically invoked during the installation and upgrade processes. When it is invoked, it determines the current patch level of the system, determines the patch scripts that need to be executed, sequences the patch scripts, and applies them.
Google Apps Improved Login (GAIL) provides Google Apps administrators with two oft-requested features: the ability to customize the login page and the ability to log in as their users. GAIL is designed to run on Google's App Engine so that administrators do not need to have their own Web server. GAIL works by making use of the SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) Service for Google Apps. Premier and Education Editions of Google Apps are supported. Standard Edition is not.
The POP and IMAP troubleshooter serves to diagnose and solve connection problems from client machines to email services. It reads the client configuration files (Outlook, Windows Mail, Thunderbird, etc.), checks the individual settings, and then attempts to create POP, IMAP, and SMTP connections using these settings. The troubleshooter is coded in C++ using the Qt environment. It can be used generically, or can be customized for the demands of a particular email service.
stupid-xml is a ridiculously simple annotation-based XML stream parser for Java. The main goal of this project is to get the strings you care about out of XML and into Java as quickly as possible. You define a simple model class, specify the relative paths for its fields, and it will start generating instances for you from an XML stream. The functionality is limited. It will only parse Strings into your model, but this keeps everything extremely simple. Once you have the Strings in your model, you can perform filtering or more complex conversions.
Google Apps Manager (GAM) is a command line tool that allows Administrators to control their Google Apps domain and accounts. With GAM you can create users, turn on/off services for users like POP and Forwarding and much more. It requires Google Apps Education or Premier Edition. Standard Edition is not supported. Future plans for GAM include even more management capabilities as well as a graphical and Web-based interface.
Jaiwls is a component oriented framework with bundled a servlet Web server (Jetty) and HTML widget library. It is easy to integrate in existing applications with static compiled Java classes and supports dynamic websites using Groovy, a runtime injectable singelton instance, well formatted stack traces, a low memory footprint for compiled projects, powerful URL rewrites possible, a production mode (with no recompilation) for Groovy-based applications, and much more.
